    Location, location, location right on Kensington High St, for shopping, opposite Kensington Gardens and close to Hyde Park and Tube station. Friendly staff and clean individual rooms. May not be user friendly if you are disabled as reception is on first floor and lift is also on first floor.

    Clean, friendly staff and nice breakfast. Located across the street from Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and The Orangery.

    We Booked online and asked for two beds. When we arrived, we were told there were no rooms with two beds. I showed them our paperwork. They were very nice and arranged a small A-Frame style room with a roll-out bed so we would have two beds. The room was small and tight, but manageable considering we had no other options. The hotel is very small and you do have to walk up a flight of stairs with your luggage to reach the reception. Price is good, hotel is clean, just don't expect too much.

    Superb

    I enjoyed the Hotel. The room was small but had everything you would need. The bathroom was first class and spotlessly clean. The breakfast choice was great, ( and I liked the inclusion of the boiled eggs). The staff were lovely especially the gentleman on reception who was obviously in charge that day. He was excellent.

    Having the reception in the breakfast room was most bizzare. You could potentially have burning toast behind you while checking out ( which we almost had). If you had reason to complain the other guests would all hear. Why also when offered tea is it not served in teapots??? A cup with a tea bag in it and having to go and use the large milk jug on the buffet is not good.

    Extremely small rooms, not really clean, very expensive (100€/night) for what it offers

    A difficult to find narrow entrance on Kensington High Street next to the Giraffe restaurant. Even the Black cab driver had trouble. However, having found the hotel the room was compact but well appointed, decorated and furnished in a modern style. The bathroom was also well equipped with a great 'monsoon' shower. There was no bath. The bed was comfortable and the glazing kept out most of the noise from the busy High Street. There was an excellent continental breakfast provided in with the room rate which was reasonable for the location. The hotel is close to Hyde Park Gate and within easy walking distance of the High Street Kensington Tube station to the West and the Albert Memorial and the Royal Albert Hall to the East. The room and the public area were clean and tidy and there was free wifi throughout the hotel.

    The only word of caution is that Reception is on the first floor which can only be reached via a fairly steep staircase from street level. There is a lift from the first floor level serving the rooms but the 'stairs only' access from the street makes the hotel unsuitable for those with walking difficulties.

    It was like a secret hotel as it was up above a business and turned out to be a lovely surprise. The staff were very helpful and room was so comfortable. We will definetly use the hotel again.

    Location was excellent.

    We both thought the breakfast could be a bit more exciting; a selection of breads, maybe some more cold meats, coffee wasn't great, just show a bit more imagination!

    Location near Hyde Park, the room, especially the shower, easy access late at night.

    Paid an extra £10 for a full english breakfast, and said we wanted it at 10am. The staff called our room at 9.30am to ask when we wanted our breakfast, we said 10am but when we went down at 10am our breakfast was cold.

    Good central position, very comfortable rooms, immaculate throughout,helpful and courteous staff. Good value for London

    The lift was a bit temperamental and starts from 1st floor. Steep stairs to first floor could be difficult for some.

    Very modern and comfortable, great location for our festival in Hyde Park.

    Parking is a real issue with this hotel as doesn't have hotel car park. We were looking to pay around £70-£100 pounds in parking for 2 nights.

    Lovely clean spacious room, modern contemporary design, staff were very attentive and helpful. Breakfast was simple but included everything you needed from a continental breakfast. Superb location and 10mins walk to Harrods, Knightbridge. Enjoyed stay and would definately use again.
